"Simon Kempston will be playing Karamea on Friday 1st March from 8pm . $15 at the door. Free entry for music loving children. Simon performs thought-provoking, evocative original songs . His beautifully crafted, folk-tinged material showcases his incredible, distinctive and intricate fingerstyle guitar work, an exciting blend of the folk-baroque, blues and classical styles, and his gently nuanced, compelling tenor vocals. An inspiring poetic lyricist, Simon's live performances are intense and impassioned, the subject matter chiefly Scottish, yet with universal appeal."
